Chester, VA Indian Wedding by Whiddon Productions

Grab a tissue, Maharanis! Whiddon Productions shared with us a magical wedding video and I can truly feel all the love that surrounded Ani and Dev during their wedding festivities. They had a colorful Sangeet night where their family and friends gathered to celebrate our couple. It's amazing to see every family member and friend get involved and dance along like one big family, right in the feels! The wedding ceremony started off with a joyous baraat where Raja Dev arrived in a white carriage only fairytales can describe, a dancing crowd welcomed him and took him to meet his bride at the Cultural Center of India. This baraat was so energetic that I was dancing in my seat along the Bollywood beats! Maharani Ani was a showstopper in a red and gold lengha perfectly accessorized with kundan jewelry and a marvelous tikka to adorn her graceful updo. She was carried like a true Maharani in a golden doli to where prince charming Dev was waiting for her under a warmly lighted mandap with red and gold hues. Only Kalash Decorators could pull off something like this! Ani and Dev got ready for their reception and Kalash Decorators surprised them once again with a beautiful sweethearts stage with white and purple draping making it the perfect backdrop for our couple to toast with their families. Bollywood DJs lighted the ballroom with a romantic ambiance perfect to dance the night away along their perfectly curated playlist. Rasoi made sure the guests were fueled with delicious food to party until the wee hours of the night and Sugar & Salt provided a gorgeous golden and burgundy tier cake to satisfy any sweet tooth in the house. Hit play and relive this weet affair beautifully captured by Whiddon Productions

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
One of our mutual family friends shared his bio and did the same on his side. We started chatting and after a week or so we decided to meet. First meeting, was nice and fun I had a specific mind set that what kind of a guy he would be based on the picture I saw on his bio. But, he was completely different matured, funny, had a good sense of humor and most importantly caring. After, few meetings or so I had this feeling that he is the one. He had everything that I wanted to be in my man. I always felt protected with him and could see the future with him. 

How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I did not had a specific color for my wedding dress, but I wanted a traditional one with a modern touch. My designer knows my style and the colors that I like so it was a easy process. I told her what vision I had in my mind and she made a beautiful dress.  

What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part of the planning process was planning everything out with your family and how everybody gets involved, excited, and shows their love towards you.

What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
The particularly loved the food, DJ, and the decor thought out all the wedding events. 

Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
One of a special moments that constantly replays in my mind from my wedding. Is when the priest announced us a husband and wife for the first time. It's just a different kind of a feeling that is hard to describe in words. 

Happy Tuesday, Maharanis!

Waltham, MA Indian Wedding by byDesign Films

Hello, Maharanis! Join me for a marvelous digital journey to the sweet wedding of Anu and Sushain! These college lovebirds got married in a lavish wedding in the heart of Boston. byDesign Films was part of it and created a beautiful record of all the guest’s wedding wishes with an incredible film. To begin with their festivities Groom Sushain sang for his bride at their Sangeet night and later opted to surprise her once again arriving to the wedding ceremony, just like a prince charming, riding a graceful white carriage that transported him to the entrance of The Westin Waltham Boston. Here, Maharani Anu waited her turn to make her grand entry in a red Sabyasachi lehenga specially picked for her by the groom! Such unconventional and sweet detail! This beautiful modern venue offered its best ballroom for the couple to tie the knot and host their first reception as a married couple. As expected, the amazingly talented Lefebvre Photography captured the couple in all their glory during their wedding weekend and Love Decor accompanied and guided them and took care of every detail through all their celebrations! The glam bash was enlivened by the top-notch DJ Silk Events Dj + Lighting who created a fun party for the newlyweds and their guests. Take a sneak peek of this beautiful wedding by hitting play!

Description of the Day from the Bride:

On June 10th, I married my best friend and soul-mate, in front of our family and friends who traveled near and far. Our families are split between Boston, Los Angeles, and India so you can imagine how challenging the planning process proved to be at times given the time difference. Our initial choice was a big fat Indian wedding in our family's hometown - Jodhpur - however, we landed on my beautiful hometown of Boston! We only had two months to get our wedding planned and honestly, we could not have done it if we did not find such wonderful vendors! We had 4 main wedding events - Mehndi, Sangeet, Wedding, and Reception, and although it was not in India, I never wanted to feel that we were missing out on our big fat Indian wedding dream because of location. Those two months were perhaps the most stressful and overwhelming times but when I saw the baraat dancing and celebrating their way to our welcome entrance, the stress was instantly replaced with sheer excitement. Standing in my wedding dress, I couldn't help but dance secretly to the melodious Bollywood tunes and live dhol player (Thank you DJ Rishi!) and not to forget, the LA crowd brought their beautiful sunny weather to dreary Boston! The moment finally came when Sushain and I would officially tie the knot and two families become one!

 

How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
It was love at first sight for us! We met while I was in LA with my best friend and our family friend invited him when we all went out one night. We had an instant connection and continued talking even after I came back from Boston. After that, we started visiting each other as often we could and he even met my aunt the first time I came to visit! Reflecting back, it was just a gut feeling, all of a sudden, we couldn't remember a life without each other and there has been no looking back since that night.
 
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I had come to LA for the weekend and he took me to this beautiful and romantic Italian restaurant, Il Cielo. There we were led to this private area cornered off and decorated with twinkle lights and roses. He popped the question here and it could not have been more intimate and perfect. This place will always hold a special place in my heart.
 
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
We were planned to get married in Jodhpur, India, where our families are from but had to change the location last minute to Boston. In just 2 months, we rushed to find all of our vendors and imagine a new wedding. I think we got extremely lucky with our vendors who were beyond helpful and flexible, recommending other great vendors to us. I really wanted to incorporate all of our Jodhpur traditions but with chic and classy decor which I think Shruti from LoveDecor nailed. I was very specific about hair and makeup because I like minimal makeup, nothing too fancy which is out of my comfort zone but Makeup by Marium made me feel like the most beautiful person in the world during all events. I still cannot believe we pulled off a 3-day event with family and friends from all over in just 2 months. I guess it's not impossible when you have a village! 
 
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
I knew that I wanted a traditional red lengha but nothing too heavy in work, preferably embroidery work. My dress was actually selected by my husband and was by Sabyasachi. We were on such a tight timeline while in Mumbai that we must have gone to 6-7 boutiques in a day that were all over Mumbai. Nothing compared to the first lengha he picked up and nothing lit his eyes up more than seeing me in the Sabyaschi one. I knew that was the one and despite being HIGHLY indecisive, he went with the first and I think it was absolutely the perfect choice.
 
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
You get to spend more time with your family and close friends during the process than the actual day. Moving across the country made me cherish those moments more when it was 2 AM and we are still packing favors with our family friends. My bridesmaids came over almost every day to help me with everything from decor to mental breakdowns ;) I also had the best support in my in-laws who were coming from India and made sure they brought everything and anything that we potentially would not have here. I just enjoyed time spent with everyone!
 
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
FOOD! I cannot count the number of people who told me how much they loved the food and got to eat! Usually, in family weddings you find yourself ordering pizza at 2 am when it is all over but not here! Nothing made us happier knowing that everyone ate well - after all, we are from Jodhpur! Also, I had a running theme of DDLJ in our wedding because a) I am a superfan and b) Sushain is the Raj to my Simran, also helps that he is a talented singer and musician so all my friends and family always joke that I finally found my Raj ;)
 
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Sitting in the doli and being lifted by my brothers - I still cannot put my emotions into words but there is something about that moment where everything feels real and it suddenly hits you that you are getting married
 
Another very special moment was a certain tradition in our culture where the maternal uncle will remove your bangles and put on bridal bangles symbolizing that you are now a married woman. Since my uncle could not come from India, my brother stepped in on this ritual and if not my Mamaji, I would not anyone else other than my elder brother to give me this blessing.
 
For events other than your ceremony, please tell us as much as you would like about the decor, style, dances, and all the special details.
Mehndi - floral pastels and intimate with family friends and bridesmaids + groom's side. We had a group of aunties who sang and played the dholak, they even roped Sushain into singing!
 
Sangeet - very intimate, this was the day a lot of my family flew in and were meeting Sushain and his family for the first time so we kept the guest list tight
 
There were dances by my cousin, his brother (aka Michael Jackson ;) ), his parents, me and my bridesmaids, and us. He even jumped in with his brother at the end of his performance to our surprise and they might have had the best performance but I am biased ;)
 
Reception -
We danced even when they started cleaning up - nothing stops us and I could not thank my cousins from Toronto enough for keeping the party going with high energy
 
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Everyone told me it will fly by and it truly does, just enjoy the moment. No matter how much planning and organization you have, something will happen. Don't worry, no one really notices, just enjoy your time with family, friends, and your groom.
 
Anything else you want to tell us? We'd love to hear all about your other details! (jewelry, mehndi, venue, cake, bouquets, etc.)
We are Bollywood lovers so I always wanted to incorporate that but with the DDLJ twist so we named each event. These event names matched our wedding cards and website as well!
 
Mehndi - Mehndi Laga Ke Rakhna (DDLJ)
Sangeet - Aaja Nachle
Wedding - Chhangani Dulhania Le Jayenge
Reception - Sushain ki Dulhania
 
These posters are now proudly displayed in our home 
 
I also ordered a cake topper from Etsy and asked if they could use the infamous DDLJ pose where I am held over his shoulder. It is the cutest thing ever and so us! I did a lot of little details to tie in the team from the favors, cake toppers, to our names. Anything more was borderline too cheesy and got vetoed ;)
 
I didn't opt for the traditional Rajasthani Jewelry (think of Jodha Akbar) because I really love Polki/Kundan and honestly that much gold is a)heavy and b) doesn't suit me much. I wanted minimal but left that dept to my mother and mother in law. I wore what I was told to and like they saw, mothers know best!

Hope this love story added some extra inspiration to your wedding plans! If so, let us know!
